The Buddleia seem very "iffy", but should survive zone 5, especially with good protection.
Here we lose some and keep some. Even with the best drainage, they seem to give up the ghost.
Ours have quite a good snow cover to this point.
They are very easy to grow from seed, and will bloom nicely by late summer.
We have lots of seed should you be interested!
We always do some "insurance" cuttings, and maintain them indoors over the winter.
I don't think the variety makes much difference.
